Sumatra

Made on special order from the hand-picked material carefully chosen by myself.

Carved from the whole piece of amber, not modified, is pure natural polished Amber. See our Catawiki feedback from other buyers of our Amber.

Colour varies depending on light conditions. Play of various 30 million years old’ inclusions under different light is intriguing, mysterious and amazing. Pix taken under normal light conditions. No flash or filters used. Place it against the window or light source - and you would not need aquarium any more!:))

Use it for collection, healing, meditation, conversation piece or as an unusual decoration.

US GIA study of the origins concluded Sumatran amber was produced by the extinct tree species Hymenaea Protera 20 to 40 million years ago.

Please take a note: highly skilled craftsmanship required for the high water pressure boring and polishing/carving of this material with no flakes.

As usual, before putting to auction it was tested in salt water (floating) and UV light (pix included).

Posted from Indonesia by EMS tracked/insured (I am spending dull British summer here:)) Import taxes and duties (if any) to be paid by the Buyer.

    Response by seller
    Blue colour seen under direct sunlight as stated in the listing, and this is exactly what makes it unusual - different colours under different light conditions. Please put it under the direct sunlight and (hopefully) you will correct the feedback.
